3dtorus says “The Initiation EP came together by reflecting on my initiation on techno, in 1996 in Berlin. I remember, back then this was something completely new, like an Underground Resistance album (“Galaxy 2 Galaxy – A Hi-Tech Jazz Compilation” – highly recommended!) says in the title: “Hi-tech Jazz”. That is the impression it had on me, like an industrial soul sound, machines singing, funky, dirty and futuristic.”“From 1997 – 2001 I was completely absorbed into the...

poppy nogood produced these four ambient tracks using voice, guitar, bass, drums and violin, recorded through a laptop and Ableton Live.

Towards the top right hand corner of the cover lays a bright yellow star larger than ours. Around that star orbits 14 planets that, like in our own system, vary considerably. Many of these planets surfaces are unreachable, and may or may not contain life. However, one, just like Earth, is situated perfectly in a Goldilocks Zone. Therefore, a craft was able to approach and descend upon the planet and pick up recordings, images, and samples for further research. Here is a small glimpse of the...

3dtorus writes:"'Consumism' marks my first release in 2015, I wrote it during two weeks with a heavy flu by the end of November 2014, in a strange state of mind, in a land somewhere between Codeine, Aspirin Complex, dream and wake, weak and weird."I think it reflects my listening habits in the second half of 2014, which were mainly instrumental hip-hop, trap, dubstep and dub - slow and heavy electronic beats, twisted synths, bass and more bass."The title came to my mind when I...

Here it is, the second album of Berlin based electro pop artist Lie Craze, five years after the release of her positive reviewed debut album "Never Played With The Cool Kids" in 2009. Lie Craze's music has often been described as both catchy and honest, musically and lyrically. "Lyrics are very important to me.

Berlin based electropop artist Lie Craze released her debut album 'Never Played With The Cool Kids' in 2009 and her last single and video 'Oh Dare You' almost exactly three years ago. This summer her second album is going to be put out eventually with the first single 'GAS/GAD' released on Fwonk*. GAS/GAD is a bit different from the songs I did on the first album.

Enjoying The Undertow is Isotherme’s first single for Fwonk* and displays a penchant for weaving multiple melodies within a song’s structure. Electronic sounds bubble and splash as if in water. Each melodic line and counter-line represents a creature of the sea. Fish travel by. Dolphins jump. E-bowed guitars mimic whale calls. The bass line is the ocean floor. Mermaids swim in the lightness of the percussion. And the sea itself is heard in the lush pads which envelop the entire piece.

'Rain (On Your Charade)' is an album with which I explored possibilities of 'Post Techno'. It has clear elements of techno and dub and is definitely not an average dance music music album. Rather I tried to tell a story within, to take listeners on a journey and to bring them back home safe and entertained. Although it was completely produced with software I find it to have a very analogue sound. Most important for me was to create a personal piece which includes my artistic vision of track...

Hello! As a lifetime soccer fan, this EP is dedicated to the beautiful game. Each song is its own little island, and there isn't an overarching narrative or anything.

-ATD- is a pure Electronic album that recaptures the vibes of the past, while keeping the modern element intact. While this album is not a retro album but has feelings of retro.In 2012 I had the urge to create music from a digital source to analog and back again, this idea formed -ATD- "Analog to Digital" but since this method I was using didn't work for me, I instead created the album in DAW.

'Mind Insert' was chosen as the single for the simple reason that I found it to be the catchiest track of all 11 I produced to be released as the album 'Rain (On Your Charade)'. To me it is as well a good example for why I think the whole album to be Post Techno. It definitely is techno if you look/listen at each element solitary – but together they do not appear as Techno. Yes, I have quite a strict idea what Techno is and what it sounds like, which is mainly because I experienced it during...

Inspired by the growing algorave scene, Anny FM creates iterative, semi-improvised (try-to-) dance music with code in Tidal.

Gross Prophet and Vasko The Pig – two of Fwonk* long standing members combine their skills on this 4 track EP.As you might expect from two of the noisiest artists on our roster, this if full of razor sharp beats and acidic synths.
